Holocentric chromosome behaviour in Cuscuta (Cuscutaceae).
The extensive karyological differentiation in the Juncaceae is particularly attributed to the presence of a specialized condition: holocentric chromosomes (sometimes referred to holokinetic chromosomes or chromosomes with diffuse kinetic activity).
Moore and colleagues follow with a look at the possibility of a holocentric chromosome
ancestor existing between the cereal genomes.

represent an evolutionary advantage?

2010; Korinkova & Kral 2013), however, these species possess holocentric chromosomes

We need to keep in mind that the study of many other natural systems, for instance species with extreme chiasma localization, holocentric chromosomes
, achiasmatic conditions, presence of supernumerary segments, etc., could help to gain new insights into the meiotic process.

are also often described as polycentric or possessing a diffuse centromere.
